    Ephesians 6:10-13, 18

    10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 18Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,


    Psalms 16:1-2, 5, 7-8, 11

    1Preserve me, O God, for in thee I take refuge. 2I say to the LORD, "Thou art my Lord;I have no good apart from thee." 5The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup;thou holdest my lot. 7I bless the LORD who gives me counsel;in the night also my heart instructs me. 8I keep the LORD always before me;because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 11Thou dost show me the path of life;in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.


    Matthew 19:16-26

    16And behold, one came up to him, saying, "Teacher, what good deed must I do, to have eternal life?" 17And he said to him, "Why do you ask me about what is good? One there is who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments." 18He said to him, "Which?" And Jesus said, "You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, 19Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself." 20The young man said to him, "All these I have observed;what do I still lack?" 21Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven;and come, follow me." 22When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful;for he had great possessions. 23And Jesus said to his disciples, "Truly, I say to you, it will be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." 25When the disciples heard this they were greatly astonished, saying, "Who then can be saved?" 26But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

    Heb 6:10-20

    Brothers and sisters:
    God is not unjust so as to overlook your work
    and the love you have demonstrated for his name
    by having served and continuing to serve the holy ones.
    We earnestly desire each of you to demonstrate the same eagerness
    for the fulfillment of hope until the end,
    so that you may not become sluggish, but imitators of those who,
    through faith and patience, are inheriting the promises.

    When God made the promise to Abraham,
    since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself,
    and said, I will indeed bless you and multiply you.
    And so, after patient waiting, Abraham obtained the promise.
    Now, men swear by someone greater than themselves;
    for them an oath serves as a guarantee
    and puts an end to all argument.
    So when God wanted to give the heirs of his promise
    an even clearer demonstration of the immutability of his purpose,
    he intervened with an oath,
    so that by two immutable things,
    in which it was impossible for God to lie,
    we who have taken refuge might be strongly encouraged
    to hold fast to the hope that lies before us.
    This we have as an anchor of the soul,
    sure and firm, which reaches into the interior behind the veil,
    where Jesus has entered on our behalf as forerunner,
    becoming high priest forever
    according to the order of Melchizedek.


    ps 111:1-2, 4-5, 9 and 10c

    R. (5) The Lord will remember his covenant for ever.
    R. Alleluia.
    I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart
    in the company and assembly of the just.
    Great are the works of the LORD,
    exquisite in all their delights.
    R. The Lord will remember his covenant for ever.
    R. Alleluia.
    He has won renown for his wondrous deeds;
    gracious and merciful is the LORD.
    He has given food to those who fear him;
    he will forever be mindful of his covenant.
    R. The Lord will remember his covenant for ever.
    R. Alleluia.
    He has sent deliverance to his people;
    he has ratified his covenant forever;
    holy and awesome is his name.
    His praise endures forever.
    R. The Lord will remember his covenant for ever.
    R. Alleluia.


    Mk 2:23-28

    As Jesus was passing through a field of grain on the sabbath,
    his disciples began to make a path while picking the heads of grain.
    At this the Pharisees said to him,
    “Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the sabbath?”
    He said to them,
    “Have you never read what David did
    when he was in need and he and his companions were hungry?
    How he went into the house of God when Abiathar was high priest
    and ate the bread of offering that only the priests could lawfully eat,
    and shared it with his companions?”
    Then he said to them,
    “The sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath.
    That is why the Son of Man is lord even of the sabbath.”
